This work focuses on the fifth generation (5G) communication networks that hold great prospects for realizing new applications and providing the desired Quality of Experience. In this regard, energy efficiency and network reliability are considered as important factors to be ensured in 5G device-to-device (D2D) and multi-tier networks. Specifically, we have derived expressions for the end-to-end transmission success probability and analysed the impact of different network parameters on the network reliability, for D2D networks. The mathematical models incorporate the randomness in the network deployment and present a fair idea about the impact of network parameters on the transmission success. We have further quantified the impact of different transmission flow models on the energy efficiency for D2D networks. Furthermore, a denser network deployment has been considered, based on multi-tier networks. Considering the spectrum crunch and the need for exploring new spectrum opportunities, we have proposed a new dimension to spectrum heterogeneity by analysing the utilization of dual band millimeter wave (mmWave) technology in a control data separation architecture (CDSA) based multi-tier network. A multi-objective optimization problem has been developed to jointly optimize the spectral efficiency and energy efficiency. We have also presented a case study to analyse the impact of dynamic resource allocation in multi-tier networks, highlighting the need for a solution that ensures network reliability and energy efficiency.
